The St. Louis River Alliance is looking for volunteers Saturday to help cleanup Lake Superior beachfront along Wisconsin Point in Superior.

Volunteers are needed from 9 a.m. to noon. Meet at Bear Creek Park (110 Moccasin Mike Road)

Volunteers will help clean up garbage and other debris on the beach and help prepare habitat for piping plovers, a rare shorebird that is still seen resting in the area each spring but which hasn't nested in the area for decades.

The Alliance will provide bags and some gloves, but please bring your own gloves if you can. Bring your own water bottle. Drinking water and snacks will be provided. Dress appropriately for the weather and the work.

Interested individuals and organizations may contact the St. Louis River Alliance to find out more about volunteering for this clean up effort. Contact Kris Eilers at or call 218-733-9520.
